Lack Of Respect

Extracts from this document...


Lack of Respect to the Teachers from Students at School A teacher or an educator is a person who provides schooling for his pupils and students, either in formal or informal ways. Usually, the role of a teacher is formal and outgoing, carried out by way of occupation and at a school or other place of formal education. In many countries, a person who wishes to be a teacher as a profession must first obtain professional qualifications or credentials from a university or college. The professional qualifications may include the study of pedagogy (which I may explain some other time), the science of teaching. Teachers may have to continue their studies after they qualify. Teachers may use a lesson plan to facilitate student learning, providing curriculum or a course of study. While the role of a teacher varies among cultures, the teachers provide education instruction in literacy and numeracy, craftsmanship or vocational training, arts, religions or spirituality, civics, community roles or life skills.'' ...read more.

Teachers are tired for being treated as something that shall be feared by the students. Teachers are tired for the mistreatment of the society due to the stereotype portrayals of teachers in media, being antagonized by the kids because the kids assume that we, the teachers may eat them alive if they forget to complete their homework. No, we eat salad! The teachers need the trust from their students. With enough trust and respect, the teachers can be an understanding friend, a surrogate parent or the most importantly, a great teacher for the kids. The current view of the society regarding the teachers nowadays must be changed so the relationship between a teacher and student can be improved and the kids won't see the school as an ominous fantasy dungeon that has the teachers as the villainous monsters that shall be hated. ...read more.
